Comprehensive Roof Leak Detection Expertise
Roof leaks exist way before they leave stains on your wall or ceiling, which is why roof leak repair first begins in leak detection. We search the entire roofing system to find the cause of the leak, from the attic to the chimney and the individual shingles.
Water leaks can be very deceptive; the location of the stain is oftentimes far from the actual roof damage. Once inside the attic, water travels along rafters and horizontal surface, making the entry point difficult to find. Because of this, we inspect the whole roof and attic to identify the problem and offer you a complete repair solution. We make sure to eliminate the leak at the source, rather than treating the symptoms.
Common causes of a leak include:
- Rotted decking
- Ice dams
- Damaged flashing or pipe boots
- Storm damage
- Poor ventilation
- Missing or damaged shingles
How Did the Water Get In?
When your roof has shingles that are missing, cracked or damaged, water can begin to seep into the building. At that point, you are at risk for water damage, because what began as only a small shingle problem will eventually become a bigger and growing problem if left unaddressed. Water entry can also be caused by missing flashing around the chimney or other weak spots on your roof. Lastly, leaks can be a result of ice dams. An ice dam is a wall of ice that forms at the edge of the roof, generally at the gutters or soffit, and prevents melting snow from draining off. The dam causes water to back up under the shingles and into your roofing system.
